Biden Tells Dem Governors He’s Fine Except For His ‘Brain’



President Joe Biden told more than 20 Democratic governors that he is in good health with the exception of his brain function while discussing the fate of his presidential campaign on Wednesday, sources told the New York Times.

Biden assured the governors that despite the growing calls for him to drop out of the presidential race, he would be staying in, two people who participated in the meeting and several others briefed on his comments told the NYT.

Biden told the governors that his trips to France, California and Italy two weeks before the debate affected his performance, the NYT reported. He added that he communicated to his staff that he needed more rest, but that he consistently tries to push himself and bypasses his staff’s concern about his schedule, according to the NYT.

Biden also claimed he needs to start working fewer hours and avoiding attending events past 8 p.m., one person familiar with his remarks told the NYT.

The “key ally” was given anonymity by the outlet to discuss the sensitivity of the situation and told the NYT that Biden is aware that he must nail his upcoming public appearances to ease concerns about his age.

The White House denied the veracity of the story…
